Fencer Bhavani Devi, who created history at the Tokyo Olympics by becoming the first Indian to compete in the sport, has won the Charleville national event in France in the individual women’s saber event. The 28-year-old fencer tweeted about the same. She tweeted after winning the event, “Win the Charleville national event in France in the Women’s Saber individual. Many thanks to coach Christian Bauer, Arnaud Schneider and all teammates. Congratulations to everyone on a great start to the season.”

At the Tokyo Olympics, she won her round of 64 match 15–3 against Tunisia’s Nadia Ben Azizi, before losing to eventual bronze-medallist Manon Brunet of France in the round of 32.

He is currently ranked 50th in the world and is a top-ranked fencer from India. He is eyeing a decent showing in the 2022 Asian Games and has started preparing for the multidisciplinary sports extravaganza.
